Dot, John will always be with me in my office, because of the Marine Corps letter opener he gave to me and it is used everyday.  You know you and John mean a lot to me and Kathy.  John rest in peace, the Marine has your six.

I’m so sorry to hear of John’s passing.  We interfaced through my work with the Dept. of Chn, Youth and Families.  One day in his JPO office I admired his wall map of the mills along the Brandywine.  With his help I was able to get one which I now have on the wall of our Illinois home, a memento of our life in Chester County and a fine colleague. I thought of John just yesterday as I passed it in the hall. A good man. Rest In Peace, John.

Dot and family,  so shocked and sorry to hear of John’s passing.  John was always a guy who put all his talent’s into everything he took on and saw them through to completion.  I was lucky to have been able to work with him and enjoy him.   Ken
